Illegal logging in Nevado cloud forest

Cloud forest illegally logged in Nevado de Colima. Some endangered species such as Abies and Mexican Colimensis Tilia.  Profepa has the information but has not acted.

The Nevado de Colima is again subjected to pressure from illegal logging. The national park, has been invaded by machinery and personnel toppling trees colimensis Abies (fir a kind of unique in the world), Mexican Tilia and other endangered species, apparently without authorization from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat).

A group of environmentalists from Ciudad Guzman noted that the "stumps" (the trunk is left standing after the cut) no mark that denotes a legal authorization; It was learned that the land in question belongs to smallholder Alejandro del Toro, who would not even be informed of the use.

The complaint was already lodged with the delegation of Semarnat, which in turn gave evidence to the delegation of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa), which pledged to carry out an operation inspection and closure, which has not been executed.

"We expect the batteries to become the Profepa, is here a time bomb, forest providers are out of control [...] if you do not act soon, by July, they will have destroyed much of the cloud forest.
